From the clothes we wear to the games we play, we are all individuals. Unique, delicate little flowers chock-full of free will, self-determination, and our own thoughts, dreams, and ideas. Well, ideally we could be bastions of individuality, free from influence, but then there’s that damn pop culture thing around every corner you turn! BAM, it’s on your TV! BANG, it’s in your closet! BOOM, it’s EVERYWHERE!!! Join us this week as the Monkeys are joined by their special guest (and Matt’s wife), Nikki Fuller, and put on their thinking caps to discuss why exactly pop culture is something to be paid attention to! So, turn on the dog channel, prepare for some disappointment, and curse the Hollywood casting calls as you prepare for a brand new episode of Monkey in the Cage!
NPCs; they are the lifeblood of any adventure, campaign, or gaming world. Sure, the story is created by the actions of the Player Characters, but without NPCs, who would the heroes turn to for help, sell all their (sometimes ill-gotten) treasures off too, or shiv prison-style in a back-alley for some easy XP? Join us this week as we jump back almost two decades to discuss some of the memorable NPCs – allies, adversaries, and otherwise – from our epic AD&D 2nd Edition campaign! Ready your fantasy cellphones, lock down that split-personality disorder, and for the sake of your family take out a life insurance policy as you prepare for an all new episode of Monkey in the Cage!
